If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right
If being right means being without you
I'd rather live a wrong doing life
Your mama and daddy say it's a shame
It's a downright disgrace
Long as I got you by my side
I don't care what your people say

Your friends tell you there's no future
in loving a married man
If I can't see you when I want to 
I'll see you when I can
If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right
If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right

Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with you
knowing I got a wife and two little children
depending on me too
And am I wrong to hunger
for the gentleness of your touch
knowing I got somebody else at home
who needs me just as much

And are you wrong to fall in love
with a married man
And am I wrong trying to hold on
to the best thing I ever had
If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right
If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right

Are you wrong to give your love
to a married man
And am I wrong trying to hold on
to the best thing I ever had
If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right
If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right

I don't want to be right
if it means sleeping alone at night
I don't want to be right
if it means coming home at night
I don't want to, I don't want to
I don't want to never, never, never be right
